The CMS Eagles EDR (8th-grade team) fought till the very last game but was bested by North Little Rock and its alliance partners!!!! The final results were: They placed 2 out of 21 in the Qualifying rounds. They won 6, lost 1, and tied 1 match. Our alliance won in the semi-finals but lost in the finals. So our alliance came 2nd overall. This is an improvement over our first meet in El Dorado where they were 9 out of 16 in qualifying and did not make it to the semifinals.
Good luck to Ms. Martar's Engineering Eagles Robotics Team and Mrs. Todd's 8th-grade Robotics team as they travel to Little Rock tomorrow to compete in the Vex competition.
